Exhibition: There is a Planet
Artist: Ettore Sottsass
Venue: The Triennale Design Museum
Dates: Until March 11th, 2018

The Triennale Design Museum presented a monographic exhibition about Ettore Sottsass on the occasion of his 100th birthday. The exhibition examines in depth the polyhedric and complex work of Sottsass as architect, designer, photographer and writer. The show is accompanied by a book and a catalogue. The book, which is named after the exhibition, includes a long series of pictures taken during forty years of travel around the world. These pictures show the human presence on the planet and are by themselves a really good reason to visit the exhibition.

Exhibition: Incontri
Artist: Paolo Roversi
Venue: Galleria Carla Sozzani
Dates: Until February 11th, 2018

This exhibition of Paolo Roversi is complementary to the largest ongoing show of the artist at Palazzo Reale. For “Incontri”(encounters) Roversi has developed a display with thirty diptychs and triptychs as in a painting from the Renaissance period, which made extensive use of this technique. These pictures are particularly interesting for their proximity to the pictorial technique and its peculiar delivery of the image itself.
